One of the smallest UK pubs - for which the new distancing rules will be problematical.

Capable of accommodating only about 5 customers - permission to serve outside is critical.

Negotiations are going with the relevant authorities - and, hopefully, will prove successful.

I'd read that this pub was small. But I wasn't quite prepared for exactly how small it would be. You can see inside as you approach. But I couldn't work out how I'd be able to fit in through the door! Miraculously, the locals managed to make space for an extra body. As a Greene King pub, only Abbot & IPA are served. The single bar is full of oddities including a mummified cat. I decided to ascend the narrow staircase in the hope of finding some space. But upstairs there is a small room which acts as a function room. I doubt you could hold a function with more than 10 people, due to the confined space. There was also a toilet. With no seating or tables, I went back down to the bar and managed to perch on the end of a bench. I definitely recommend a visit here. The people in here are friendly, if not a little eccentric and the pub itself is a gem.

Worth a visit as a curiosity.GK IPA not a favourite of mine but I have to say it tastes much better in Suffolk than elsewhere!

After ticking the 3 pubs I had left from the Camra GBG I thought I’d give what is portrayed as the smallest pub in Britain a try.

To be honest I wouldn't argue with that statement but it was pretty disappointing. The pub holds around 25 people max and seating is at a premium.

I know it’s a GK pub but I expected a bit more. 2 ales on the pumps which were GK Abbot and GK Abbot was decent but was over £1.00 more than the ales in the other pubs I’d been in that day.

A good mix of customers with all of them friendly including the barman.

I am reliably informed that the addition of upstairs toilets is quiet a new concept but I didn’t try them out.

Glad I’ve been in as the last time I was in Bury I couldn’t get in here.
